Here’s another game from Tekken franchise. The Mishima Clan is back. As you may been expecting, there’s extreme fighting and violence. Yeah, that is Tekken series. As an arcade game it looks very good. Nevertheless, Tekken 7 is not as good as some other 2017 games. There are some extremely bright moments when you can see every segment pretty sharp but unfortunately it’s not the case all the time.
If you’re new to Tekken, this game probably won’t help you learn the rules quickly. They are not exactly going to throw you a welcome party. There is not much help in the practice mode or with the tutorials.
You will get fun while playing, that’s for sure. Well, you’ll enjoy if you don’t mind some silly parts. If you learn how to love that ridiculousness, you’ll have even more fun. This game offers a variety of interesting creatures. You can find animals such as tigers and bears. There are also some demons. You’ll be a witness of some moments from previous games. For example, they’ll try to tell about the reasons why a single family engaged the whole world into war. An excellent choice was made here. Instead of dubbing everyone into English, they used subtitles. That’s a great choice. Subtitles allow players to connect with characters more, ‘cause every narrative has its originality and uniqueness.
You can play it online
There’s an option of playing the game online. It’s certainly much more interesting than the other way. You can compete with other players and meet different choices and styles along the way. If you’re up for some purchasing with in – game currency, you’ll find tons of crazy stuff. Without revealing all the funny details, let me just tell you there are options of rainbow and deer hair. It’s all up to your imagination.
Although it brings more joy, online playing may be a little problem sometimes. There are some issues they need to work on to make it work better. It may be hard to find the opponent online. Sometimes, players may disconnect themselves because your choice of character is visible and they may not be in the mood for fighting that certain character. Developers are aware of this issue and they are currently working on fixing it. We can only hope for the best.
You definitely should try Tekken 7 if you’re a fan of Tekken series. If you haven’t tried playing any before, you should give it a chance. It won’t be easy at first; especially knowing those tutorials won’t be of much help. Eventually, you may find yourself liking the game.
- Fun and fast fighting
- You will find the stories of some characters interesting
- There is no variety of interesting modes
- Online playing is the game’s biggest issue at the moment
- It’s not very newbie friendly.
